Happy New Year. With the festivities. This week had only with only 2 teaching days and two training days.
The first training day included looking at emotional intelligence with Dr Sarah Whyte. Dr Sarah was a clear expert in her field. What was interesting was how to understand how and why students react the way we do and how we can react in turn as teachers. My favourite Metaphor from the day was that "Teachers are the Weather in the classroom, we can make a place sunny and bright or create a storm where everyone gets wet"
The second part of the day included mindful practice and exploring how we can use mindfulness in the school environment.
The G10 students started their ePortfolio presentations. Every student is enlightening and giving fasinating insights with their project. Check up next week with their progress.
